Sunny Miramar Beach Backyard Wedding

Sunny Miramar Beach in Destin – a Florida backyard wedding.

Every couple has a story. Jennifer and Jason met a few years ago and it was love at first sight. I guess you know when you meet that special person, it takes you by surprise when you’re not looking. But when you finally see it, it’s like a revelation. You just know.

Like everything else, timing is everything. Covid happened, so they had to postpone their wedding until this year and they decided on a Sunny Miramar Beach backyard wedding. Jennifer and Jason planned their wedding with the help of Hannah Poole of Hannah Kathryn Events, who was a pleasure to work with. We did a first look and took our time without stress for some gorgeous bridal portraits in Miramar Beach Destin Florida.

The day didn’t go completely without shenanigans – and while that’s not funny at the time, it’s totally a funny story to tell later on. Because of the wedding taking place right behind the Pearl Hotel in Miramar Beach in a residential area, of course music has to be turned off early otherwise the police shows up at your door. And that’s exactly what happened – first we had security patrol warning, and then the cops showed up. Only that the music wasn’t coming from our house, it was coming from two other places – a live event at the Pearl, AND the wine festival happening on their lawn. Thankfully, nothing could ruin the day for J&J, but it makes you wonder who could have – Possibly – called the police knowing that there was a wedding happening… I mean… why would you want to ruin someone’s special day?!

Anyway, Super Fun day and such wonderful people that I’m so thrilled to have met!

Happy Summer, friends!

First Look photos are always so much fun! If you don't know what a first look is, I am explaining it below. Jennifer and Jason had their first look in front of their Airbnb in Miramar Beach Destin Florida.

In short, a First Look is a moment during the wedding day (before the ceremony), when the Bride and Groom plan to see each other for the first time that day all dressed up. The First Look allows couples to share this special moment together in a more private setting. Unlike traditional weddings where the couple plans to see each other at the altar.

We decided to take the majority of the bridal portraits of the bride and groom near the wedding venue in Miramar Beach, Florida. We lucked out with a ton of photography opportunities close-by.

Ceremony took place in the backyard by the pool in Miramar Beach, surrounded by family and friends, then we took a quick trip to the beach but Jennifer and Jason didn't want to get sandy, so we kept it clean and fast.
